While some people might think that violence dies down after a tragedy like a mass shooting, this is simply not the case. In fact, menacing threats tend to INCREASE after a horrific crime.

A member of the NYPD explained:

“Whenever things like this happen, we get a lot more calls.”

Disgusting. There are too many misguided and disgusting people out there.

To make matters particuarly scary, the president of New York University received an email from a person who claimed that an Orlando style attack was just around the corner for American universities and colleges. The author claimed the plot was in retaliation for the killing of a Taliban leader back in May.

In addition to the horrific threat, someone called gay venue Monster Bar and declared:

“I want to f*ck up all homos.”

A source went on to reveal that a caller threatened another gay bar called Boxers NYC and said:

“I am going to stand outside the bar and use f*ggots as target practice.”

We’re just sickened. Absolutely SICKENED.

The police also admitted deranged people have left hateful notes on the windshields of cars throughout the city.

This is such devestating information. We just hope nothing comes out of these threats and that people choose love over hate.
